Cinefade Variable Depth of Field System

The Cinefade enables the gradual transition from sharp to blurred background while keeping the foreground in focus.

Cinefade uses a custom cmotion lens control system to vary iris diameter, changing depth of field. A custom-built variable Neutral Density filter sits inside a matte box and keeps exposure constant by slaving the filter motor to the iris motor.

 The Cinefade system: 

  • Works with any digital or film camera and cine lens
  • Quick and easy to set up 
  • Simple to operate
  • Allows for a range of up to 5 T-stops
